It is FirstNet Systems’ policy that in so far as reasonably practicable, an environment is created and maintained that includes a commitment to eliminate and/or reduce Health & Safety risks to employees, customers, suppliers, contractors, visitors, and members of the public.
The approach to Health & Safety shall be based on the identification and control of hazards, and the prevention of incidents, particularly those involving personal ill health, injury, and damage to equipment/property. Near miss reports (i.e., Identifying unsafe acts or conditions) are also investigated as FirstNet Systems Ltd. recognises these as being an essential method of avoiding future incidents. This approach is an important and integral part of the efficient operation of the business.
FirstNet Systems Ltd. recognises that it is not sufficient merely to have a General Health & Safety Policy Statement, but that it is more important that everyone concerned is made aware of their responsibilities in implementing the policy. All line managers shall ensure that the policy, which contains procedures for safe methods and conditions for work, is implemented within their areas of responsibility.
